Kairi Sane Set For Title Match at NXT Takeover

Kairi Sane Set For Title Match at NXT Takeover

Four rounds of hard-hitting action narrowed down a field of 32, and The Pirate Princess and The Queen of Spades are the last two competitors standing.

Sane got past Tessa Blanchard in the first round and followed that up with victories over Bianca Belair, Dakota Kai and Toni Storm to reach the finals. No word yet on who her opponent will be. She is a one-time World of Stardom champion, three-time Goddess of Stardom champion and four time Artist of Stardom champion in her previous promotion.

McMahon wasn't present for the original tease of a match between Rousey and WWE's former NXT trio of Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Bayley, but he was present last night and chose to nix any more hints of a match that there weren't actually any plans for.

With her big win, Kairi Sane has now earned the right to challenge for the vacant NXT Women's Championship. A member of Ronda Rousey's stable of MMA Horsewomen, rumors have been circulating that Baszler, Rousey, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir may face off with professional wrestling's Four Horsewomen (Bayley, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair) in some context at the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view.

Though they approach competition with different outlooks, Sane and Baszler now find themselves in the same spot, as finalists in WWE's groundbreaking women's tournament.
